Itinerary:

1st. Day
Pick up and leave Johannesburg in an aircon microbus with our experienced Kruger Park driver / guide. Travel east across the Highveld farmlands and down the Valley towards Nelspruit, the capital of Mpumalanga province. After a lunch stop, get your cameras ready and enter southern Kruger Park for the first exciting game drive. You will be travelling through lightly wooded bush and you can expect to see antelope, giraffe and possibly elephant. Before sunset drive a short distance to Sabie River Bush Lodge where we stay overnight. Book into a lodge room or en suite safari tent with aircon and modern furnishings. Time for a swim then relax on the deck looking across the extensive Sabie River hoping to see some hippos or crocodile. You can order a drink before dinner in the Gecko Lapa Restaurant which offers a menu for a 3 course meal.

2nd Day
Early start with a quick cup of coffee, board the safari vehicle then head into Kruger Park for your early morning game drive. Travel through bushveld areas and probably along the river looking for Big 5 species ( lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo ). The Sabie River is a dominant feature of southern Kruger and travelling along the banks can be very exciting. After about 3 hours, stop at a Camp where your guide will provide breakfast packs and allow time to relax. Continue on the mid-morning drive along a different route or to sightings reported recently. Arrive at Skukuza and book into a chalet with aircon and screens over the windows to prevent insects. Approximately 16.00 board the National Parks safari vehicle equipped with spotlights for a sunset drive and a chance to see predators or other nocturnal species such as hyena. Your guide will arrange dinner in the Cattle Baron Bistro well-known for its juicy steaks and then walk back to your chalet under the starlit sky.

3rd Day
Depart on another memorable early morning game drive heading towards the open plains of central Kruger Park . Here you can expect to see some herds of zebra, wildebeest and hopefully big cats. Enjoy a hearty breakfast on the deck at Satara then visit the curio shop. Continue on the mid-morning drive which goes past Nsemani Dam and the Timbarvati river to Orpen exit gate. Travel to Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge and book into an en suite chalet with aircon. Look around the lodge, have a swim and then enjoy lunch in the gardens. Later board the open safari vehicle for an evening game drive stopping en route for "sundowners ". Return to the lodge for dinner usually served in the boma with campfire which is a highlight of the safari experience. Overnight listening to jackals or other nocturnal animals.

4th Day
Enjoy coffee and rusks on the verandah then join the ranger for a sunrise game drive and your last chance for Big 5 species. Also a wonderful time for bird calls as the bush comes to life. Visit a waterhole to look for rhino drinking or crocodile. Return to the lodge and freshen up before a delicious breakfast then final photos in the African bush. Depart for the return journey through the farmlands and trout fishing areas of Dullstroom. Arrive back in Johannesburg at OR Tambo Airport or nearby hotels by 16.30. Please allow 1.5 hours connecting time for local flights or 3.0 hours for International flights
